part time maintenance staff is incredibly underpaid for a job that is merely identical to that of a full time worker. the only difference is additional training and some jobs that part timers can't complete. apart from that m experiences at the town have been nothing but positive

Allowed for an amazing opportunity to work with various age groups, but the employees are not always the most professional. This workplace allows for a good environment for the patrons, however it is not always great for the employee as it is more of a lax environment rather than a business environment.

Great! Good environment with nice employees and clean place. Very quiet. It can get cold sometimes but the place is nice. Never have to guard alone either.

7 hour days for the most part, lots of room for picking up more skills. Parking right up near the building and in the middle of no-where so no traffic for the most part. Has cafeteria on site.
Pros
Short work weeks
Cons
In the middle of nowhere so no lunch errands

The Town while presenting a inclusive and forward thinking environment is as unprofessional as you could possibly imagine.

staff are not respected. The turn over of experienced competent staff is astonishing. In this non union environment management takes full advantage of walking out staff of all experience levels with little to no cause. Every Friday a weekly staffing report is published outlining incoming and outgoing staff. All staff are constantly on edge because you could be next!!!. Job security does not exist here only flavour of the month.


this municipality seems to be more of a stepping stone because when people come in and truly discover the poisonous culture the begin to look for their next employer.


how this municipality hopes to attract high level staff and retain them with a less than stellar reputation is beyond me. I have personally observed the repeated harassment of employees by managment as they operate in a consequence free environment without union protection.
Pros
Free Coffee
Cons
No Training, Inexperienced Management, No Job Security, No representation for non union Staff.

Management constantly changing... hard to get any major projects in the works or completed. Good pay, good hours, a lot of freedom. Staff appreciation events only held in main office - staff working in other facilities excluded

A typical day would start in the morning (either 7:30-4, 8-5 or 9-6 shifts) Arrive early to set up various puzzle activities, quiet games in the morning. When all the children would arrive we would do morning circle, the sometimes split off into groups (by age) and do various activities outside and inside.(a sport, then a craft)
Played lots of different games and activities during the day, went swimming on Wednesdays and field trips on Thursdays.


I learned to organize structural games, supervise children, and make boring activities fun!


Co-workers were all very helpful and friendly for the most part.


The hardest part of the job was the long hours, especially the 9-6 shift. Being on your feet for 9 hours, running and swimming with kids is very tiring.


The most enjoyable part was having fun and playing games with the children.
Pros
working with children, field trips
Cons
long hours, on feet all day
